Re: I downloaded sims 4 and the play button is grey and it says I need windows

Do you get an option to uninstall when you click on the game in your games library? If so click on it then choose Revert game edition. Origin Access is not available for Mac users. Does your Mac support the current version of the game or do you need to also download the Legacy Edition? https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-Mac/The-Sims-4-Legacy-Edition-thread/m-p/8420037#M22694

You have a subscription to Origin Access which is not compatible on a Mac. Please see the opening post on page 1 of this thread I have moved your posts to for further help.
